Express introduction of IVU.rail in just one month
Standardised planning of vehicles and personnel in the cloud – to make its processes more efficient, Regiobahn will soon be relying on the integrated IVU.rail standard solution from Berlin-based IT specialist IVU Traffic Technologies. Thanks to the special IVU.express implementation process, the system is set to be up and running in December already.
Since 1999, Regiobahn has been reliably connecting people from the regions of Mettmann, Erkrath, Düsseldorf, Kaarst, Neuss and the surrounding area across a distance of 34 km. With its powerful diesel railcars, the railway company operates a punctual, safe transport system with departures every 20 minutes. Regiobahn is now introducing the integrated IVU.rail standard system to simplify its schedule and personnel planning. Schedule planning is set to begin in December 2020, with personnel planning to follow next year.
With the products from IVU.rail, Regiobahn benefits from an end-to-end digital workflow for the planning of its vehicles and employees. In IVU.run, schedules can be planned efficiently, taking into account all of the relevant information, while IVU.duty supports planners in creating optimum duty schedules for the entire personnel. IVU is also taking care of the technical management and hosting of the entire system in the IVU.cloud. The special IVU.xpress implementation process is also ensuring that the core components of the software will be ready for use when the timetable changes in December – just one month after the start of the project.
“Thanks to its efficient schedule planning and duty scheduling, IVU.rail is perfectly suited to our requirements and can therefore be introduced without any modifications in no time at all,” says Sascha Zuk, Managing Director of Regiobahn. “The software’s continuous flow of data will also help with the setting up of our new EVU traffic control centre.”
“We are delighted to have been awarded this contract from Regiobahn. The decision to adopt IVU.rail is further evidence that even smaller companies can put our standard system to meaningful use in a cost-efficient manner,” says Christian Teschner, Rail Sales Director at IVU Traffic Technologies. “The awarding of this contract also demonstrates the effectiveness of our sales strategies and our ability to acquire new projects even in the current situation.”
